The state attorney general and consumer protection commissioner are urging all Connecticut residents who shop at Target stores to take advantage of the store’s free one year credit monitoring offer, due to the data breach last month.
Consumers can register for free credit monitoring at: creditmonitoring.target.com. Target also provides answers to frequently asked questions on the credit monitoring.
The free credit monitoring is offered through Experian’s ProtectMyID, which provides a copy of a credit report, daily credit monitoring, identity theft insurance, and access to a fraud resolution agent.
Consumers may request an activation code until April 23, 2014. If they have questions, they are encouraged to visit target.com/databreach or call Target at 866-852-8680.
